Do you support and encourage informal music making?

Informal music making and music learning includes activities like practising and improvising alone or with friends, writing songs and compositions in your bedroom, jamming with friends in a garage, exploring YouTube videos on music, reading music books and magazines. It's distinct from 'formal' learning, such as you might do in school, and 'non-formal', which you might do in clubs and community organisations. Most deliberate interventions in music learning, such as teaching, will be formal or non-formal, but the informal is something that can be supported and harnessed to great effect.
No, not at all

About this tool...

This tool takes you through questions about many different aspects of supporting children and young people's musical progression.

Along the way, you can find out about some of the experiences of other people working in musical progression, and share your own.

There are suggested actions for individual questions, which are designed around the user roles you have specify in your profile.

At the end of the tool, your responses are analysed against different sets of ingredients related to progression, so you can get an impression of where your strengths and weaknesses might be.
